Safe Environment

Our Safe Environment program, Circle of Care, is the Archdiocesan response to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishop’s Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. It consists of several parts including:

  • Specific policies covering relationships, communications, and the obligations of archdiocesan clergy, employees, and qualifying volunteers.
  • Certification for clergy, employees, and qualifying volunteers.
  • The Circle of Grace education concept that teaches young people that God gives us all our own Circle of Grace. 
  • St. John Vianney is committed to providing a safe and loving environment for all of our youth.
